Does the idea of visiting your dentist make you uncomfortable? Laser dentistry is another dental option that can help you look forward to dental treatment. Lasers dentistry is popular because it offers a number of benefits. Besides making the procedure far less invasive, it allows our dentist more precision along with minimizing the damage done to the other tissue in your mouth—even resulting in less bleeding. Furthermore, your mouth will probably heal faster if your treatment was performed with a laser.

At Riverdale Dental Center, our dentist employs laser gum therapy–LANAP–which offers many benefits for your periodontal health. LANAP stands for Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, which provides a gum treatment that eliminates the majority of the pain experienced during traditional treatments.

Our dentist, Dr. Jon C. Bauman, uses the LANAP laser to remove the diseased tissue between your gums and teeth but leaves the healthy tissue. LANAP lasers also help the treated area to regenerate as well. After the bacteria and tartar have been thoroughly removed from the gum pocket, Dr. Jon C. Bauman will seal the gum pocket in order to prevent further infection.

If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of our laser dentistry, please don’t hesitate to contact Riverdale Dental Center at 303.659.1920. Dr. Jon C. Bauman and our team will gladly answer any questions you have. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
